This week’s laugh comes courtesy of Shappi Khorsandi on Radio 4’s always funny ‘The Unbelievable Truth’. She’s on with Reginald D. Hunter, Adam Hills and of course David Mitchell. Perfect listen to take you out of office mode for 30 mins.
Josh T Pearson doesn’t need much to get our hearts racing - a chair, a mic and a guitar (and one helluva beard, if you’re counting that). Here, in the middle of an empty room, he performs ‘Woman, When I’ve Raised Hell’ to beautiful effect.
Georges Méliès was a French illusionist and filmmaker - famous as the world’s first “cinemagician”. In a time now where magic on the big screen is confined to 3D and green screens, his is an artform of a distinctly different era altogeter. Indeed, it’s an art form mourned to incredible effect in Martin Scorsese’s recent Oscar winner ‘Hugo’. We won’t give too much away about that film (we do highly recommend watching it with the family though!). So for now, check out some classic Georges Méliès moments…
